Giraffes, Wagers & Dream Chasing


Manuella Stefani, 18 years old, from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil did this giraffe.
It is one in a million and it's beautiful : )


A young spirit has taken on a bet that she could gather One Million Giraffes within a limited amount of time.
She has about a year and a half to go and she has almost 1/4 of her Giraffes.
Not only do I think all kids should be supported on personal quests, objectives and goals... I think she has collected some awesome works.
All of the different shapes and forms, all the different things with which people make their giraffes.... simply awesome.

When I heard about this kids mission from Mel , I never imagined that on Saturday night I would be sitting around the house with good company, grilling out good food, making drip candles & doodling giraffes...


Imagination really is the only limitation and dreams are meant for chasing...

Orhan....hahaha, but do you feel gay enough to create a giraffe? The proof is in the pudding...

Oceans...hahahaRachael and I found ourselves sitting at the kitchen table trying to recall the features of a giraffe...long neck, yellow with spots and long eyelashes were what we could recall. Hahaha, I guess we could have pulled up One Million Giraffes to refresh our heads!

(((Mel))) It is the little things in life that connect the big things together & there are so many little things...we just gotta enjoy them as much as we can....so Thank You! This young ladies mission, website and collection is enjoyable, my time with Rachael was enjoyable & posting this was enjoyable...as was reading about it over at your place. These are the little things and in a simple yet profound way, they mean the most...

Jerzygirl!!! :) I imagine she will be 3 giraffes richer in no time ;)
Hahaha, remember my little book of peace & flowers? simple pleasures :)
